Massage Will Be One or a Combination of the Following:
A form of soft tissue mobilization, sports massage involves a wide range of techniques that can speed up the healing of damaged or overworked tissues and muscles, resulting in shorter recovery time. It helps break up adhesions that can develop between the fascia of different muscles, thus improving muscle suppleness and mobility, and helps clear out waste and toxins (like lactic acid) from muscles, reducing stiffness and enabling a faster recovery.
Therapeutic bodywork that enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental stress and physical fatigue. Prenatal Massage is a sidelined massage and is safe to massage after the first trimester.
Involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia. Deep Tissue Massage is used for chronic aches and pain, common areas include a stiff neck, upper & lower back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
A light massage that helps flush out excess fluid in the body. It is a safe and effective way to reduce swelling, improve healing time and boost immune function. If you are looking to reduce puffiness, swelling or just a way to relax while gaining some other benefits – this is for you.
An individualized massage treatment meant to comfort, nurture, and support you in your cancer journey. Benefits of an oncology massage include improved relaxation, sleep, and immune function, as well as relieving anxiety, pain, fatigue, and nausea. Available for pre & post surgery.
An alternative practice involving applying pressure to areas in the feet and hands that reflect to corresponding areas of the body. In addition, footwork of any kind can also help improve foot mobility and rigidness in the process.
BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY
Typically, massage therapy incorporates activities such as stretching and reflexology. Stretching exercises are reputable for enhancing one’s muscles flexibility as they get trained to handle long-range motion. Reflexology helps to diminish aches and pains in the body and even restore mobility to the feet.
The chances are that the main reason you are taking the massage is to deal with an irritating and re-occurring pain. You can use massage therapy to calm down the body’s overall stress levels, increase blood flow, and tackle muscle tension for a speedy recovery.
Athletes often strain their muscles due to the high activity they are involved in. Undertaking a form of massage therapy, called sports massage, helps you sleep better as it relaxes the muscles and brings down the stress levels.

What is the Lymphatic System?
Do you ever feel puffy, bloated or full, before you’ve even eaten anything? This may be a sign that your lymph nodes aren’t draining properly. The recommended treatment for this is a lymphatic drainage massage, which can be performed manually, but ideally with the assistance of an expert.
In this article we’re going to cover everything you need to know about the lymphatic system and some of the main benefits of a lymphatic drainage massage for immune health, detoxification and circulation.
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that pass through the tissues and organs in our body. Lymph fluid is transported through these vessels and around the body. This works similarly to how blood passes through blood vessels, but without the pump of the heart – instead, lymph fluid is transported via muscular contraction.
The lymphatic vessels are connected to ‘lymph nodes’. There are up to 600 lymph nodes in the body, responsible for draining lymph fluid and removing toxins and waste picked up along the way. This is then excreted, to be removed from the body.
To conclude, a study published in 2018 concluded that lymphatic drainage massage is a safe and effective way to reduce swelling, improve healing time and boost immune function. If you are looking to reduce puffiness, swelling or just a way to relax while gaining some other benefits – a lymphatic drainage massage is a great choice.
BENEFITS OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Lymph fluid is transported around the body from muscle contractions or external manipulation. If the fluid is unable to drain properly, it can create a puffy, swollen and full appearance. When a lymph-expert massages the body, they help to remove fluid blockages and encourage the lymph nodes to drain.
When the lymph nodes are draining properly, they remove waste, toxins and harmful bacteria from the body. When the system is compromised, these toxins are kept in the body instead of being excreted. Encouraging the lymph nodes to drain helps to detoxify the body.
Lymph fluid transports white blood cells, to fight infections and maintain immune health. When lymph fluid builds up in one area, the immune system is affected. This is why lymphatic drainage massages are often prescribed after surgery to heal faster.
When toxins aren’t removed from the body, they are insulated into cellular adipose pockets that present as cellulite. A lymphatic drainage massage encourages the removal of waste, which over time can help to banish cellulite. A study published in 2010 found that lymphatic drainage massage was able to reduce thigh circumference and the abdominal fat in people with cellulite.
A swollen, puffy appearance is a clear sign your lymph nodes aren’t draining. Lymphatic drainage massages combat swelling by moving the lymph fluid through the body to the nearest node to be drained. Extreme swelling is a condition known as lymphedema – commonly experienced by individuals with cancer.
As with most massages, a lymphatic drainage massage can be relaxing and stress-relieving. This therapeutic massage has effects that go way beyond the relaxation, making it an ideal choice for individuals looking to get the most bang for their buck.
